Schriefl/Wegscheider

A new jazz style from Tyrol and the Alpine region? Many of these pieces have been written in the musician’s homeland. They used clichés of the Alpine language and music and connected them with the playing manner of popular jazz and avant-garde. Because of the many instrumentations with Alpine horn, tube, accordion, trumpet, horns, piano and vocals, it seems for the audience as if several bands are on stage at the same time.
At times comfortable like a cow munching an Edelweiss and then again like a New Orleans Marching Band with a bizarre arrangement of Alpine melodies. Or a Jazz pianist in Midtown who operates his piano with strange articles. Due to the melting of genres a style is created which could only be presented on an earthquake proof area.
